actually, there are also implementations in Scheme, Common Lisp 
(UnCommonWeb) and Cocoon-FLOW has similar concepts.
  And somewhere (I think on the portland pattern repository) I recall 
reading that Viaweb (aka "the first web app") was written in CPS. Also 
notice that the Wee project in ruby is more advanced that Borges.

reinventing this from time to time.
Anyway, I just wanted to point out that IIRC something on this lines 
appeared recently in the nevow svn tree, maybe you can take a look.
